We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.
For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.
And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
About the Role
Press a button, get your favorite food. UberEats makes this possible for millions in the world with high quality, in budget and with a wide selection. Couriers are the lifeblood that power this magical experience and explosive growth of our business. And the Courier team helps thousands of people generate millions in earnings and be successful in this job.
As the Product Manager for Courier Navigation Experience, you will envision and execute on a strategy to help couriers maximize their earnings and be successful long term. Uber Eats is in over 200 cities, delivering food from thousands of restaurants to millions of eaters. This leads to unique and tough challenges - how do we map the world for deliveries and make sure food gets to the eater no matter where they are? How do we ensure that couriers of all types, including those on foot or bike, can use Ubers app to navigate themselves? How do we deal with cities where street addresses dont exist? How do we create the ideal pickup and dropoff wayfinding experience?
These are the types of questions you will wrestle with every day. You will lead this critical component of our new business, working closely with colleagues across Engineering, Design, Operations, Data Science and Marketing to bring your ideas to life.
